"There were 12 million new coronavirus cases across WHO’s European region last week," WHO Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge said at a briefing. Qazet.az reports citing TASS.

According to him, it is the highest single weekly total during the pandemic.

He said that spike was driven by the hugely infectious omicron variant, but admissions to hospital intensive care units haven’t risen significantly.
